I've seen a similar error with NetBSD 3.0_BETA uniprocessor kernel on a
Powermac G4 a few weeks ago. But it only happend infrequently on a not
trustworthy network (multi level switched ethernet with more that a
thousand of hosts on it). I've never seen this on the same machine
while it was connected to my home network.

What about the cable?

Do you use hardware checksumo offload? Does the driver support the
correct mode (100MBit half-duplex)?
